Giving Identity to Rohingya Refugees Across The Globe

Developed right here in Malaysia with a Rohingya as one of the founding members, a blockchain project aims to provide the Rohingya diaspora all over the world fleeing ethnic cleansing with a digital, immutable identity via blockchain.
There are 3.5 million Rohingya people who are currently stateless, particularly a Muslim ethnic minority who aren’t given citizenship or human rights.
Monickered the Rohingya Project, this blockchain project is a grassroots initiative that aims to fix the issues that come with statelessness for the diaspora scattered across the globe and those those who are home, but are not given citizenship rights. The project would hopefully allow for financial inclusion, and enable the populace to participate in the digital economy, allowing them opportunities for employment, entrepreneurship or skills training.
As of December last year, the project was going to start with the registration of 1,000 undocumented Rohingyas worldwide.
